DIS CHAR GE LAMP WAR NING: This fixture is fitted with a discharge
lamp, which is highly susceptible to damage if improperly handled.
Never touch the lamp with your bare hands, as the oil from your hands
will shorten lamp life. Also, never move the fixture until the lamps have
had ample time to cool. Remember, lamps are not covered under
warranty conditions.
This fixture emits intense UV radiation, which is harmful to the eyes and skin. The intense
luminance of the lamp can cause severe damage to the retina. Never operate this fixture
w
e covers have been specially designed to shield
against UV radiation.
Epileptic Warning: Those suffering from epilepsy should avoid looking directly into the
lamp at all times.
Avoid switching the fixture on and off repeatedly in short intervals, as this will reduce lamp
life and intensity.
To achieve the intensity associated with discharge lamps, these lamps use a gas sealed
in a high-pressure environment to emit a brilliant output. Due to the high pressure involved
with the construction of the lamp, the lamp may explode during prolonged extensive use.
This risk is increased with age; added care is encouraged when dealing with older lamps.
Thus, lamp should always be replaced at the end of their recommended duty cycle.
Extreme caution should be used when operated this or any fixture fitted with a gas
discharge lamp.
Never open this fixture while in use!
During the initial operation of this fixture, a light smoke or smell may emit from the interior
of the fixture. This is a normal process and is caused by excess paint in the interior of the
casing burning off from the heat associated with the lamp.

Preparation and Installation
2.1 Mounting
The POWER SPOT 250™ is fully operational in two different mounting positions,
hanging upside from a ceiling or set on a flat level surface. To avoid internal
damage to the unit, never mount the unit on its side as illustrated below. Be sure
this fixture is kept at least 0.5m away from any flammable materials (decoration
etc.). Install a safety cable that can hold at least 10 times the weight of the fixture.
Never use the carrying handles for secondary attachment.
Refer to regulations BGV C1 (formerly VBG 70) and DIN VDE
0711-217 for proper installation in Europe
To ensure proper installation, only qualified staff should attempt
installation.
2.1.1 Clamps
The POWER SPOT 250™ has been designed to hold multiple clamps to the
bottom of the unit in several different orientations. Always use an appropriately
rated clamp to mount this unit to truss. Refer to the printed instructions on the
bottom of the fixture for proper clamp installation.

2.3 Connections
2.3.1 Power supply
115v ~ 50/60Hz AC (America’s),
Connected load 500W <=> 4.4 A (blind current compensation)
or 230V ~ 50Hz AC (EU),
Connected load 500W <=> 2.2 A (blind current compensation)
Operating voltage is pre-selected at the factory and is not user selectable.
Because line voltage may vary from venue to venue, you should be sure your
fixture voltage matches that of the outlet. The voltage requirements for the
fixture are clearly printed on the side panel near the power cord.
2.3.2 DMX-512
3-Pin XLR Input/Output. [+] = Pin 3 / [-] = Pin 2 / [Ground] = Pin 1
2.4 DMX-512: DMX is short for Digital Multiplex. This is a universal protocol used by
most lighting and controller manufactures as a form of communication between
intelligent fixtures and controllers. A DMX controller sends DMX data instructions
from the controller to the fixture. DMX data is sent out as serial data that travels from
fixture to fixture via the DATA “IN” and DATA “OUT” XLR terminals located on all DMX
fixtures (most controllers only have a DATA “OUT” terminals). DMX Linking: DMX is a
language allowing all makes and models of different manufactures to be linked
together and operate from a single controller, as long as all fixtures and the
controller are DMX compliant. To ensure proper DMX data transmission, when
using several DMX fixtures try to use the shortest cable path possible. The order in
which fixtures are connected in a DMX line does not influence the DMX addressing.
For example; a fixture assigned a DMX address of 1 may be placed anywhere in a
DMX line, at the beginning, at the end, or anywhere in the middle. Therefore, the first
fixture controlled by the controller could be the last fixture in the chain. When a fixture
is assigned a DMX address of 1, the DMX controller knows to send DATA assigned
to address 1 to that fixture, no matter where it is located in the DMX chain.
2.5 Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX and Master/Slave Operation):
The POWER SPOT 250™ can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The POWER
SPOT 250™ is a 15 channel DMX fixture. The DMX address is set electronically

Power Spot 250™
using the controls on the side panel of the fixture. Your fixture and your DMX
controller require a standard 3-pin XLR connector for data input and data output
(Figure Below). If you are making your own cables, be sure to use standard two
conductor shielded cable (This cable may be purchased at almost all professional
sound and lighting stores). Your cables should be made with a male and female
XLR connector on either end of the cable. Also remember that DMX cable must be
daisy chained and can not be split.
2.6 Notice: Be sure to follow the above figure when making your own cables. Do not
use the ground lug on the XLR connector. Do not connect the cable’s shield
conductor to the ground lug or allow the shield conductor to come in contact with the
XLR’s outer casing. Grounding the shield could cause a short circuit and erratic
behavior.
2.7 Special Note: Line Termination. When longer runs of cable are used, you
may need to use a terminator on the last fixture to avoid erratic behavior. A terminator
is a 90-120 ohm 1/4 watt resistor which is connected between pins 2 and 3 of a
male XLR connector (DATA + and DATA -). This fixture is inserted in the female XLR
connector of the last fixture in your daisy chain to terminate the line. Using a cable
terminator (ADJ part number Z-DMX/T) will decrease the possibilities of erratic
behavior.

Power Spot 250™
2.8 5-Pin XLR DMX Connectors. Some manufactures use 5-pin XLR connectors
for DATA transmission in place of 3-pin. 5-pin XLR fixtures may be implemented in a
3-pin XLR DMX line. When inserting standard 5-pin XLR connectors in to a 3-pin line
a cable adaptor must be used, these adaptors are readily available at most electric
stores. The chart below details a proper cable conversion.
2.9 Fuse Requirements
The POWER SPOT 250’s electronic system is protected by a 5x20 mm external fuse.
115V / T 6.3A (US model) or 230V / T 3.15A (EU model).
The fuse requirements are clearly printed on the side of the fixture.
WARNING:
2.10
•
Always disconnect main power before changing the fuse!
•
Always replace with the exact same type fuse unless otherwise specified by
an authorized Elation® service technician. Replacing with anything other than
the specified part can severely damage your fixture and will void your
manufactures warranty.
Transportation and Handling
The POWER SPOT 250™ comes with two carrying handles built into the base. Always
transport the fixture by these handles. Never lift or carry the POWER SPOT 250™ by
the yoke (head assembly) this can seriously damage the unit.

3.11 Error and Information Messages
HEAt
LaeR
OTMP
RsER
This message appears if you try to switch on the lamp within 5
minutes after having switched off (lamp too hot). The message
will appear on the display if the lamp doesn’t ignite within 20
seconds. The fixture will store this command and automatically
ignite the lamp after 5 minutes.
After the ignition of the lamp was two times not successful the
display will show LAER. That means the lamp could be damaged
or even missed, the fixture is overheating or there could be a
failure on the igniter or ballast. Switch off the power supply and
solve the possible problem.
This error message informs you that the fixture was overheating
and that the relay switches off the lamp. Pleas look for possible
reasons (fan faulty, air in/outlets blocked or very dirty, lamp
broken or very old, too high ambient temperature. Switch off the
power supply and solve the possible problem.
This message informs you that one of the fixture function wasn’t
able to do its reset correct (magnetic sensor, stepping motor,
driver on the PCB, cables, etc.). Repair the defect and start the
fixture again.

Operation
Operating Modes: The Power Spot 250™ can operate in three different modes. This next
section will detail the differences in the operating modes.
• Stand alone mode - The fixture will react to sound, chasing through the built-in programs.
• Master/Slave mode - You can daisy chain up to 16 fixtures together to get a synchronized
light show without the need of an external controller. The fixtures will react to sound chasing
to synchronized light show.
• DMX control mode - This function will allow you to control each individual fixtures traits
with a standard DMX-512 controller such as the LSC® Show Designer 2.
4.1 Universal DMX Control: This function allows you to use a universal DMX-512
controller such as the LSC® DMX Operator II™ or LSC® Show Designer 2™ to control
head movement, the color wheel, the shutter (strobe), and all other DMX traits. A DMX
controller allows you to create unique programs tailored to your individual needs. The
Power Spot 250™ uses 15 DMX channels. See page 27 for detailed description of the
DMX traits.To control your fixture in DMX mode, follow the set-up procedures on pages
13-15 as well as the set-up specifications that are included with your DMX controller.
Use the controller’s faders to control the various DMX fixture traits.This will allow you
to create your own programs.
4.1.1 Follow the instruction on page 18 to set the DMX address.
4.2.2 For longer cable runs (more than a 100 feet) be sure to use a terminator on the
last fixture.
4.2.3 For help operating in DMX mode consult the manual included with your DMX
controller.
4.2 Stand-Alone Operation (Sound Active): This mode allows a single fixture to run to
the beat of the music. Only use this mode when running a single fixture, or when
running several fixtures as individuals.
4.2.1 Mount your fixture in a secure and stable manner.
4.2.2 Access the main menu and select the AUDI function, this will give you access to
the audio submenu. See page 16 for the menu breakdown.

Page

Power Spot 250™
4.2.3 In the audio submenu choose the audio chase speed, fast or slow. Slow (ASLW)
will trigger the chase sequence to every two beats, while fast (AFST) will trigger
the chase impulse every beat. See page 16 for more details.
4.2.4 Be sure the Master (MSTR) function is switched “ON,“ and the SVPT function i s
switched “OFF.“
4.2.5 Choose your room size. The size function allows you to choose a the approximate
size of the room (NORM, BIG, MIDL, SMAL). The built-in programs will
automatically adjust to your slection to optimize light output for your room.
4.2.6 Use the sound sensitivity knob on the side control panel to make the unit more or
less sensative to sound. Turning the knob in clockwise direction will make the
unit more sensetive to sound, while turning the knob counter-clockwise will make
the unit less sensetive to sound. Note: This unit will react to the low frequiencies
of a sound source, tapping on the fixture or high pitched sound may not trigger the
fixture.
4.3 Master-Slave Operation (Sound Active): This function will allow you to link up to 16
fixtures together and operate without a controller. The fixtures will be sound activated.
In Master-Slave operation one fixture will act as the controlling fixture and the others
will react to the controlling fixtures programs. Any fixture can act as a Master or as a
Slave.
4.3.1 Using standard XLR microphone cables, daisy chain your fixtures together via the
XLR connector on the rear of the fixtures. Remember the Male XLR connector i s
the input and the Female XLR connector is the output. The first fixture in the chain
(master) will use the female XLR connector only - The last fixture in the chain will
use the male XLR connector only. For longer cable runs we suggest a terminator
at the last fixture.
4.3.2 Follow the same procedures listed in the previous Stand-Alone section. With two
exceptions; Be sure the first unit in the chain is selected as the “master“ (MSTR)
is turned on in the audio submenu. All other fixtures must be in “slave“ mode
(SVPT) turned on in the audio submenu.

Lamp Optimization
The lamp orientation and optimization must be adjusted after every lamp change. This
procedure centers the lamp in the reflector. Proper optimization will increase lamp life and
ensure a bright crisp output. Improper optimization may add a yellow tint to the lamp output
and reduce intensity. The minimum deviation amount is 1.0mm. Running the fixture within
a lower deviation can cause damage to the lamp and/or lens.

Maintenance and Cleaning the POWER SPOT 250™
It is absolutely essential that the fixture is kept clean and dust, dirt and smoke-fluid
residues do not built-up on the surface or within the fixture. Otherwise the fixture's light
output could be significantly reduced. Regular cleaning will not only ensure the maximum
light output, but will also allow the fixture to function reliable throughout its life.
A soft lint-free cloth moistened with any good glass cleaning fluid is recommended,
under no circumstances should alcohol or solvents be used!
The inside optical system should be maintained only by authorized persons. Please
contact Elation professionals for recommendation associated with internal cleaning
procedures.

2. Allow all parts to dry completely before attempt operation.
3. Never clean the aspheric lens with water or other cleaners. The lens
should be changed at the first sign of ware, usually in about 1 – 2 years
(lens will begin to look cloudy). For lens replacement please contact
Elation technical support.
